Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market R and K Moore Butchers. The business was originally established in the 1800s. The business boasts an exceptional reputation in this residential location, benefitting from a generous amount of repeat loyal customers.

Our client is now looking to sell the business, due to his desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business has maintained its reputation over the years for its high quality of goods and services available. The butchers offer an excellent range of fresh meats, as well as providing eggs, stock, gravy and sauces.

The business boast a 5 star rating on yell.com with reviews stating ‘The quality of produce is second to none’. Our client hasn’t embarked on modern marketing and doesn’t have much of an online presence, hence there is scope to increase customer base by using social media.

R and K Moore Butchers is situated in a prime trading location operating 3 days a week at present. We are advised the business generated a turnover in the region of £100,000 as of the 2016 accounts. This is a healthy turnover with scope to be increased, the purchaser could look into extending opening hours and explore the contract options with local businesses, offering a delivery service, advertising and using social media. A catering service could also be something the purchaser considers.

Our client has won awards for his pies and is willing to show the new buyer how he makes them if they are wishing to carry on the tradition.

The butchers would be an ideal purchase for a husband and wife team or partnership; looking to run such a highly regarded butcher's business. This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the business.

The current owner happy to offer handover period to ensure continued success of the business and  introduce purchaser to regular customers and suppliers.
